Russell Grant's horoscopes October 31 to Nov 6By Russell Grant
October 31, 2011
Aries (Mar21/Apr20) You’re spreading yourself too thin. Stop accepting every invitation that comes your way and start making more room for personal time in your schedule.
Friends aren’t terribly supportive of your plans. They think you’re setting yourself up for a disappointment and maybe they are right. Still, you’d rather take a chance than hedge your bets.
Arguments over an inheritance or refund throw a wrench in your financial plans. Don’t count on this sum to pay your bills.
Taurus (Apr21/May21) Don’t throw your pearls to swine. Someone who continually takes advantage of your kindness and generosity will come to you for yet another helping hand. Be ready to give them the thumbs down. You work hard for your money; use it for your own comfort and care.
Nobody will think you’re selfish for doing so; they all know the score. A powerful mentor is ready to form a partnership with you. This will helps you focus on the sort of work you do enjoy.
Gemini (May22/Jun21) An opportunist will try to take advantage of your boundless energy and generosity. If there’s anything you can’t stand, it’s being idle. So when you see people who are struggling with tasks, you volunteer to help.
Unfortunately, someone who has decided they don’t want to pull their weight is counting on you to relieve their burdens. Don’t take the bait. A persuasive charmer has plans and ideas that attract you, but your views and values are just as valid so stick to them.
Cancer (Jun22/Jul23) Friends are jealous of your good fortune. Don’t let this spoil your fun. The Universe is an abundant place. Just because you’re being showered with love, money and adventure doesn’t mean you’re hogging everyone else’s supply.
An attentive lover shows appreciation for your creative talent. This inspires you to paint, bake, garden and create, anything that allows you to play with colour, flavour, fragrance and texture appeals to your artistic side. Invite your inner child out to play.
Leo (Jul24/Aug23) You won’t be able to talk sense to an idealistic friend or lover. You’ll just have to let them make their own mistakes and learn their own lessons. If their efforts are triumphant, be willing to eat humble pie.
Revamping your daily schedule will help you move past some destructive behaviours. Make time for exercise, rest and creative pursuits on a daily basis. Too often, you suffer burnout from spreading yourself so thin. Prepare for family members to take your ego down a few pegs.
Virgo (Aug24/Sep23) A negative attitude is taking its toll on your relationships. People are tired of being dragged down by your pessimistic predictions. You have to focus on what is going right in your life, rather than the disappointments.
Part of the problem is your environment. Fill your living space with flourishing plants, light colours and natural fibres. If you’re suffering from depression, adopt a pet. A cat, dog, or tank filled with fish will provide a welcome outlet for your nurturing instincts.
Libra (Sep24/Oct23) You’re paying the price for having an entourage of friends and followers. Spending all of your time with a large group is draining your energy. Take this opportunity to strike out on your own.
Communing with nature can be very helpful for you. Ordinarily, you prefer the glitz and glamour of big cities.
By walking through the woods, park, or garden, you’ll realise you have an appreciation for another kind of beauty as well. Be realistic about a lover’s strengths and weaknesses.
Scorpio (Oct24/Nov22) It’s time to face off with a business or romantic partner who is trying to put you in the shade. Usually, you have no problem standing on the sidelines while your friend soaks up all the attention. This only becomes a problem when people start ignoring your feelings.
You have very strong feelings about a political matter. Just because you’re close to someone doesn’t mean you share their views and values so speak up when somebody makes assumptions about your beliefs.
Sagittarius (Nov23/Dec21) Stop looking at a situation through rose coloured glasses. If a person or organisation has a history of disappointing you, you have a good idea of what you can expect from the future. It’s time to break off this relationship and look for something better.
Spending quality time by yourself will make you realise just how much tension this problem has caused. Give yourself a chance to heal. Repairing an old business relationship will give you a renewed sense of strength.
Capricorn (Dec22/Jan20) A passionate involvement could be causing problems in your social life. It’s hard to tear yourself away from something or someone who fascinates you. Still, you can’t afford to sideline or neglect your oldest friends.
At some point, you have to reconnect with the people who have loved and supported you through the tough times. Your magnetic personality helps you mend fences, especially if you own up to your shortcomings and issue sincere apologies.
Aquarius (Jan21/Feb19) Stop kidding yourself about an authority figure. You need to be careful or you might find yourself in hot water if you don’t know when to put on the brakes. Trust your instincts and don’t put yourself in a compromising position. Never be alone with this executive, or people will talk and gossip will run rampant.
You can no longer feel charitable to a family member who is continually down on their luck. At some point, your relative must take responsibility for their actions.
Pisces (Feb20/Mar20) Don’t be too quick to praise an egotist. This so called expert is being given too much credit for their accomplishments. The majority of work is being performed by a dedicated army of assistants.
Don’t listen to your inner critic when it comes to taking a class. You’re more than capable of expanding your horizons. You’ll never know what you can do until you push the envelope. Joining a professional organisation will give you an outlet for your expertise.
